Both Katie and I are certified as having been trained in Beef Quality Assurance. We attend BQA training workshops regularly. Beef Quality Assurance is a program providing guidelines and training to cattle producers to help them ensure that all animals are treated in a safe, humane way. Medications are used properly and judiciously. Records are maintained on each and every animal until the animal is harvested. See the following link for more information on BQA. http://www.bqa.org/statebqa.aspx.
